The collection of alternative student newspapers is comprised of 43 various newspapers with duplicate copies. The alternative papers were created by students to have a voice of their own since they felt that the official school paper did not fully represent them. The papers are illustrated and at times express extreme or radical viewpoints. The papers offer a rare view inside the student body during the early years of WSU. The alternative student newspapers are available online in CORE Scholar: Alternative Student Newspapers.

These are available online in CORE Scholar: Alumni Publications.
